Looking to escape to the mountains where you can stay somewhere that is brand new and modern, yet filled with small touches in every corner to make you feel right at home? Look no further than our modern rustic dream home. We are well located in gorgeous Tahoe Donner which is well known for having the best facilities and activities in Truckee year-round.
Not only does our home offer the latest amenities and style, but we have tried to create the perfect vacation space for you, your family and friends.
Here is a glimpse of our perfect weekend at the house:
After arriving and getting settled, we usually relax in the window nook with a glass of wine and some quiet music playing off the Sonos soundbar.
Saturday morning we wake up to the peace and quiet of the mountains. We enjoy spending family time upstairs which is easy given the open layout across the kitchen, living room and dining room. After a strong latte made in the Nespresso machine, we often head to our favorite spot on Donner Lake.
In the afternoon, we stay within Tahoe Donner and pick between a hike, a swim, gym time, tennis or lounging at home playing board games. Our day could end with dinner in Truckee, or more often, a BBQ with friends. With a dining table that seats up to 12 and a kitchen set up for the gourmet chef it is always fun to entertain.
Often the night ends with a movie on the new 65” HD TV (upstairs) or 55” curved HD TV downstairs. At the end of our day, we crawl into our bed which is outfitted with high quality bedding (Crane and Canopy) and a brand new mattress. Sunday we do it all over again!
Our family enjoys being together on the upstairs level with the master retreat and kid’s bunk room (with trundle) and if our friends join us, they appreciate the spacious downstairs with 2 queen guest bedrooms, a 2nd living room (queen sleeper sofa) and 1 ½ baths.
Description of the bedrooms:
Master retreat: A king sized platform bed, a desk with a monitor, a stand-alone soaking tub, heated bathroom floors, a private balcony, and an over-sized spa-like shower.
Kids bunk: The bedroom with the best view! Kids can relax in a modern bunk bed and trundle, play with the games, books and toys and they have access to their own full bath across the hall.
Gray and Blue guest rooms: Each guest room has a queen sized bed, luxury bedding, and dresser in each closet. They are connected with a spa-like jack-and-jill bathroom.
Downstairs living room: This room is the perfect place to hang out, watch a movie, or play one of a number of board games. For larger groups, there is a leather Natuzzi queen sleeper sofa to accommodate two more as well as a half bath.
Other: In warmer weather you can enjoy the balconies set up with outdoor seating and lounging. Imagine all of that while surrounded by a beautiful forest. Our vision has been to create a place where our family would be excited to spend magical moments and we are happy to share it with you!
